BIG BEAR CITY (KABC) — A bear attacked and killed an animal trainer in Big Bear on Tuesday afternoon.

The San Bernardino County Fire Department confirmed a call came in around 2:40 p.m. from Predators in Action, Inc., indicating there was a bear attack.

According to authorities, three trainers were outside the facility in a fenced-in area training a five-year-old grizzly bear. The bear lunged at one of the trainers, described as a 39-year-old male, and bit him in the neck.

Pepper spray was used to subdue the bear and there were no other injuries. The bear is now confined at the Animal Sanctuary.

Big Bear City is in San Bernardino County, near Big Bear Lake in the San Bernardino Mountains.
